Heidi Knapp Rinella is the restaurant critic for the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper. She reviews restaurants on Friday in Neon and her column, "Taste of the Town," appears on Wednesday in Living/Taste. She dines anonymously and pays for her own meals to ensure unbiased reviews.

Rinella has been a journalist for more than 25 years and the recipient of a number of journalism awards; she has worked for newspapers in Ohio, Florida and Nevada and has published a number of Las Vegas and Nevada travel books.[1]

The book The Stardust of Yesterday: Reflections on a Las Vegas Legend written by Rinella, edited by Mike Weatherford and foreword by Siegfried and Roy, is a complete history of the Stardust Resort and Casino. Rinella and Weatherford are both staff writers for the Las Vegas Review-Journal newspaper. In the book, Siegfried & Roy, who debuted at the Stardust in the 1970s, tell of their many memories.

Personal[edit]

Heidi Knapp Rinella is not related to Las Vegas reporter George Knapp. She is, however, highly amused whenever she is asked if George Knapp is her father—which happens often.[2]
